BOSS ON CARRICK AND SOLSKJAER SUPPORT

10 February 2022

"It’s nice to know that they are following all of the games and supporting Ipswich now"

Kieron McKenna says that he hopes to welcome his former Manchester United colleagues Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Michael Carrick to a fixture at Portman Road soon. 

The Blues boss worked with the two United greats during his time at Old Trafford, having also coached The Red Devils' first-team alongside Jose Mourinho and Ralf Rangnick.

Solskjær and Carrick, who have one treble, 11 Premier League titles and two Champions League medals between them, were in the stands to watch Town's 1-0 victory at Doncaster in midweek - having also visited players and staff at the hotel prior to the game.

"It was very nice," Kieran told iFollow Ipswich when asked about their support.

"As I said after the game, they're two good friends, two former colleagues, and two very knowledgeable, experienced and successful football men.

"It was good to have their support on Tuesday. It’s nice to know that they are following all of the games and supporting Ipswich now; wanting us to win and do well. 

"It was great for them to come to the hotel before the game to meet some of the players and get around the staff. It was a nice boost for us on Tuesday and hopefully we can get them down to Portman Road at some stage as well."
